Sorry to hear of your engine troubles....

We just went through similar (but not quite) troubles with our F250. The oil cooler split and started dumping coolant into the engine oil. Dealer wanted close to 9k to fix it. Found an independent mechanic who worked on fleet trucks for a company a friend worked for and he did the job for almost half. I also bought aftermarket cooler that was a better design.

As it was, the truck wound up sitting for a couple of months while we scraped the money together. Don't much like the credit thing.

I was wondering where the park was in relation to Little Ocmulgee State Park as we hope to make it down there in the spring... maybe.
Well I will tell you the petting zoo is no more.. Animals got old and, well you know. He did not replace them due to liability issues and other issues.

As for where the park is.. Exit 49 on I-95 is the Darian Outlet Mall, we are 3 miles N.W. of there... Taking 251 North you come to a sharp right curve with another road continuing on straight, DO NOT TURN continue straight.. You will see a white rail (Vinyl board I think) fence as you switch roads.. End of the fence is the drive for the park.
